The "geeky convention" season of 2017 has kicked off with Comic Con Brussels last month, and already we are in full preparation for the next one, FACTS Spring edition 2017.
Taking place in two weeks in Flanders Expo Ghent, we can offer some spots for this convention to those moc`cers that want to attend, showcase their work and help run the booth over the weekend.
We can accomodate for an additional 2 - 3 meters of space, and a MAXIMUM of 2 extra spots are available for this expedition.
Now, these kind of conventions aren`t Lego events, but the broader
spectrum of all things comics, science-fiction and fantasy, and at
events like FACTS we are talking 50.000 visitors. So you WILL be
talking almost all weekend to intrested people, about your creations and
about your club, so no, this isn`t just a relaxing walk in the park.
Not to frighten you if you're intrested, but to give you an idea of what
Of course, this also means that the MOC's taken along have to be in this
spectrum of builds. No offense, but City, Train, Technic builds are
out of place there I fear, we are looking for people taking along
science fiction and fantasy builds.
You won`t have to pay the entry fee to the convention, and an event
brick will be supplied to all those that actively participate.
So what do you have to do to enter? Well, here below is a small form
which you should cut and paste into an e-mail message and send this to:
firstname.lastname@example.org with in the header "FACTS Spring" and adress it to "Kris Geysen" who is our convention co-ordinator.
MOC's taken along:
Estimated space needed:
and add some pictures of your builds you want to bring along.
Kris will then get back to you with more details if you can come along
(you know, it all depends a bit on theme, size, etc etc, and sounds far
"heavier" then it really is). The regulars, being those "chinese
volunteers" that have been doing these conventions for 3 years now, at
times on weekly basis, can always give you some more explanation on what
to expect and what it consists of.
A small word of warning though that I am obliged to put here. If you
just sign up for the free entrance, drop down your build for the
weekend and then disappear for two days to stroll around the convention,
well, you won`t be invited back. Hope you understand this...
